Encinal Junior & Senior High School
WELCOME BACK MEMO!!!
We are so excited to start the 15-16 school year at Encinal Junior & Senior High School. Below is some very important information you will need for a successful Back to School beginning. You can also get much of this information in Ms. Zazo’s Sunday night phone calls and on the School Loop Calendar to the left.
Orientations: The dates and times for all Orientations are listed below:
9th Grade Orientation: Monday, August 24th; 8:30 – 12:30 Gym (Parent Meet & Greet in the Cafeteria, 8:45 until 9:15)

Registration: All enrolled students should have gotten a letter in the mail re: registration. Please follow all the instructions on the registration letter. If you have any questions, please call Caroline Ardourel at 510-748-4023, ext., 3107. If you did not get a letter, that means we do not have your correct address on file at school. Because of this you will need to show proof of address. Again, please call Carline Ardourel to confirm your address and for further instructions.
Address Verification: The School District requires that all 6th and 9th grade families verify addresses. Address verification takes place in the Hangar (Room 605) from 7:am until 6:pm on Friday, August 28th. Again, if you are enrolled, you should have received a letter explaining what you need to bring with you (a copy of a lease, rental agreement or mortgage/tax bill and one utility bill (cable and phone bills are not accepted). Address verification will be quick and painless (hopefully).

Back To School Registration for Returning Students
Back to school registration is the process of updating important information such as your child’s emergency card, health information, and contact information. Through this process you will be routed through online forms and asked to read important notifications and respond with your authorization. To complete this process you will need the back to school registration letter that was mailed home on Friday, Aug. 7, to every single currently enrolled AUSD family outlining the instructions for completing the Back To School Registration Process and containing your unique confidential snapcode. Completion of the Back To School Registration Process is mandatory for every student/family.
After completing back to school registration please check back here often for other important back to school information and dates.
